Did you know that Christopher Walden had a whole career before his classic "More Cowbell" skit on Saturday Night Live? Here's my Top Five Trivia List about the actor:

2. He can dance and did a tap dance in Pennies from Heaven.
3. He is a huge Elvis fan, which is why he wears his hair like that.
4. He has appeared in more than 100 movies, the first one being "Me and My Brother" in 1969.
5. He was on Natalie Wood's yacht the night she drowned.
